Jack couldn’t believe his ears. He wanted everything she was saying to be true but he wasn’t sure how much truth there was in it…he could never know with Kate. But as he looked up at her and gazed into her eyes, his heart told him what his head didn’t know. She was being completely honest; she really did care about him like she was saying. Her lip quivered as the silence between them lengthened; it hadn’t been this long since she had apologized for kissing him. He needed to end it…just like he had last time.
He inched closer to her, putting his hands on her shoulders. Her head lifted slightly to see him, her eyes puffy and cheeks red from her crying. The tears in the corner of her eyes slowly fell down her face as she placed her hands on Jack’s arms for support. Now was the time to talk.
